Summary: I inserted batteries and took four pictures. The camera would no longer work. I went to the battery store and bought new batteries specifically for a digital camera. It would still not even turn on.
Don't purchase!!!! Waste of $$$...Broken Battery door

Summary: I have this camera, as well as the CX7300 model. As the other reviews have stated, it's a great camera...until the battery door breaks. I had this camera for just about year when the door cracked. It worked for a little while after that with duct tape, but that doesn't even work anymore. Then shortly after it happened to the other model. I think it is a shame that Kodak made these wrong and will not repair them for free. May I recommend the Canon A550 or A560.
Summary: I have purchased 2 of these cameras from kodak and The battery door cover cracked on both in the same exact spot.It is very difficult to use now.I duct tape it shut but it usually does not work. I would NEVER EVER buy from Kodak again.
Summary: My husband bought a DX6340 and was pleased with it so I bought one, too. Shortly after that the battery door on his camera broke and would not close. A few months later when I took my camera out of the camera bag I discovered my battery door was broken and would not close. I contacted Kodak for repair. They would not sell a battery door. They wanted $105 to fix it or they would sell me a trade in for $199.
Summary: The DX6340 does take excellent pictures. As with most digital cameras there is an annoying delay between pressing the shutter release and the actual picture "event", but unless you spend a lot more money, it's something you live with when you go digital. Plenty of options for the price. Again, no qualms with the photo quality. The body of the camera, however, is not reliable.
Summary: I was quite happy with this camera for about a year. Then, had similar problems as others-- battery door broke so the camera constantly shuts itself off (I've been trying to keep it shut with tape) and the shutter doesn't completely open or close, sometimes staying shut even when turned on. Basically, it's useless after a year, so not worth the money at all.
Summary: I bought this last Christmas for my teenaged daughter. We both loved it, it took great pictures, was easy to operate, though pretty bulky/heavy compared some other point & shoot digital cameras. The battery life was good, all in all, we were pleased. Until it just stopped working 3 weeks ago. We bought a new battery, thinking that was the problem, but that didn't help.
Summary: When I first bought the DX6340 last summer, I found the camera easy to use and I was pleased with the picture quality. But as time went by, I have found that actually taking pictures with this camera hasn't been easy. Its been in for repairs two times - and had two CPU's and circuit boards replaced. Its heading in for its third repair this week. Within days of it arriving home from the repair shop, it has stopped working again.
